Major businesses based in or near Chiswick, including British Airways, Virgin Media and Sky are amongst those who will attend the West London Jobs and Apprenticeship Fair on Friday March 30th organised by local MP Mary Macleod.

The MP for Brentford and Isleworth hopes that hundreds of work and training opportunities will be provided by the Fair, which will be held at the West Thames College. Anyone who is looking for a job is welcome to attend the event which is supported by BAA in conjunction with Jobscentre Plus.

Mary commented, “ I am delighted that so many small, medium and large businesses have said that they will attend and bring with them a significant number of vacancies. As we are only having organisations that are actively recruiting we are delighted to have so many names such as G4S, Sky, Virgin Media, UPS, British Airways and Arise involved, as well as many other significant local employers.”

Local people will also be invited to take part in a series of seminars and workshops including a ‘CV healthcheck’ run by Barclays and an Apprenticeship Seminar with West Thames College. Mary added, “Despite locally having a range of innovative and growing companies, as many as 60% of people who work in Hounslow don’t live in the Borough. The purpose of the Jobs and Apprenticeships Fair is put people in touch with the job opportunity or apprenticeship that is right for them. I hope that the involvement of these major businesses will encourage more people to come and check out what opportunities are on offer. For something finding it difficult to get work this just might be the event to help steer them in the right direction”
